Byleth, Dimitri, Catherine, Ashe enter the scene

Dimitri
I have to say... It's a real honor to accompany such a brave and distinguished knight. None other than Catherine, wielder of Thunderbrand!
link
Catherine
You mean you don't know? My weapon is called Thunderbrand. It's one of the Heroes' Relics.
link
Catherine
A long, long time ago, the goddess bestowed divine weapons upon 10 heroes, which were passed down to their descendants.
link
Catherine
It's an honor to wield, but I'm afraid there won't be any chance for that today. Our mission is to help clean up the aftermath, not to fight.
link
Ashe
Why would Lonato incite such a reckless rebellion?
link
Catherine
You should know more about that than any of us, Ashe.
link
Ashe
Well, I don't. Lonato never mentioned anything of the like to me.
link
Dimitri
He probably didn't want you getting caught up in his own personal vendetta.
link
Ashe
I'm Lonato's adopted son. He raised me as though I were his own blood.
link
Ashe
He was always so kind. I don't understand... I guess it has to do with Christophe.
link
Catherine
Let me guess. You're wondering why Lord Lonato would start such a reckless rebellion.
link
Catherine
How much do you know about the Tragedy of Duscur, Professor?
link
Catherine
It's when the king of the Holy Kingdom of Faerghus was...was murdered by the people of Duscur. It happened about four years ago...
link
Dimitri
It's OK, Catherine. Please, go on.
link
Catherine
Right. Well, Lord Lonato's son, Christophe, was accused of being involved in that whole awful affair. He was executed by the church.
link
Catherine
Speaking from the church's perspective, we simply passed judgment according to our doctrine in place of the Kingdom, which was in complete chaos.
link
Catherine
King Lambert was attempting a major political reform. Needless to say, he had many enemies.
link
Catherine
Whatever the truth behind that incident may be, Lord Lonato has harbored resentment toward the church ever since.
link
Catherine
Well... To be more specific, his grudge isn't only against the church. It's also against the one who turned Christophe over to them...

Church Soldier enters the scene

Church Soldier
Report! The enemy is approaching! They can't be avoided.
link
Church Soldier
Their numbers are far greater than we predicted. They used the fog to slip past the knights' perimeter!
link
Catherine
It looks like our mission just changed, Professor. Everyone, prepare for battle!
